    Unhappy Man down

    Never thought mall crawlin could be so dangerous.


    Was driving through the parking lot and some idiot came flying past me and I had to jump a curb. Heard a loud pop and didnt think anything of it.

    Started driving home and it was real lose in the steering so I gave it a little jerk in the wheel and

    Pulled over cause I knew my sway bar became disconnected. Well what I saw was much worse.

    It seems I sheared the bolt completely and actually bent the bracket holding the swaybar link in place.


    I was going to heat it up and bend it back in place, but I dont want to take something thats already weak and make it weaker by doing this, so I broke down and called up Geico.

    Was talking to them and if they have to replace the axle, which they probably will, they will probably let me pay out of pocket for a 44 for the front as difference .

    Well see what happens, but im not going to hope too much.

    I was pissed, but didnt think something like THAT happened. ... I just let it go.

    Its pisses me off but it MAY work out better in the end anyway. I just hope theyre not going to try and bend that bracket back to place and call it a day.

    If they did that I'd take a rag to protect the surface of the metal and break it off myself.

    Haha... Ive stressed many times to the rep on the phone that I dont want it heated up and bent.

    Unfort, I dont know of any other way to fix it than a complete replacement. I leave in 3 weeks so I cant afford it to take a long time.

    To my fellow Veterans that served and protected our country thank you. To those who live on our shores and continue to disrespect our history... leave.

    My experience with the Gecko is that they will do the cheapest possible fix in the shortest amount of time. Be prepared for a fight if you want it done right!
    Just because the road stops doesn't mean you have to!

    Ive priced out a D44 with elockers and 4.10's and it comes to 2500, but the guy said hed give me 20% off so that drops it down to 2ish.

    A new 30 runs me 1600 without anything. So ill GLADLY pay the extra 400 for all of that..


    I already told all of this to the lady on the phone so she said it probably wont be a problem.. Itll be the same amount of work

    So keep your fingers crossed
